A brass buckle with an affixed disc portraying a chimney sweep within oak leaves and the words "Morgen Wird Gefegt" ("Tomorrow will be swept"). The brass is dark with uncleaned patina. The silver finish to the affixed disc shows wear, and there are some dark spots on the brass, which is probably natural for a buckle that was worn by a chimney sweep.
